BARTHELEMY, Annie. Psychological implications of Paul Ricouer's philosophy of action. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2015, vol.21, n.2, pp. 130-135. ISSN 1809-6867.

Starting with the Philosophie de la volonté, from the first volume published in 1950, to the anthropological amount represented by Soi-même comme un autre in 1990, until the book Parcours de la Reconnaissance printed in 2004, one year before his death, Paul Ricœur never stopped reflecting on the relationship between one's acts and their author. Crossing the phenomenological and hermeneuticapproaches, he investigates the connections between the questions "What? Why? Who?" in one's action. He confronts the claim of an action by its author to the recognition of this act by others. Thus, Paul Ricoeur raises the question of personal identity and recognition at the core of his philosophy of action. Our communication proposes to show the fruitfulness of this philosophical reflection to demystify the supposed therapeutic advices which, by inviting the patient to " e himself" or suggesting him to "make efforts" to overcome his personal distress, only manage to increase his perplexity. We will also see how Ricoeur's thinking is attuned to an authentic therapeutic relationship, insofar as his philosophy of action makes us enter into the heart of theinvoluntary and voluntary action. It maintains the tension between initiative and suffering, and finally proposes a wider representation of one's personal identity.
